      Grate the potatoes into a bowl. Squeeze the potatoes to drain off excess moisture. Squeeze out the moisture from the spinach. Drain the onion. Mix all the vegetables together and stir in the matzo meal or flour, some seasoning, and the eggs.

      Pour enough oil into a frying pan to coat the bottom and heat over a moderate heat. Put three spoonfuls of the mixture in the pan, spaced well apart, and press out to make cakes about 10cm (4in) diameter. Cook until golden brown, about 3–4 minutes on each side. Keep the latkes warm in a low oven while cooking the remainder.
